Do you have a family member, friend or other loved one who has been on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic? ESSENCE wants to hear from you!

As we all continue to do our best to navigate this new normal, so many of our family members and friends have been deemed essential employees as part of companies or provide products or services that the world has come to depend on to survive this crisis.

Hospitals, grocery stores, public transportation, delivery services, sanitation services and more industries are filled with men and women across the nation who have continuously risked their lives to keep us safe and healthy during the quarantine period.

If you know have an essential worker in your life, we invite you to share a little about them and why they mean the world you. To participate, share your story on your Twitter, Instagram or Facebook page using the hashtag #MyEssentialHeroes.
